The kids are alright.
They like asparagus. And broccoli.
When they were just little, we used to treat broccoli like it was a prize: "Finish all your baby slop and you can have more BROCCOLI!"
I remember one night hearing a chorus of "Can we have more tofu and green beans, PLEASE!"
For a while we convinced them that Trail Mix was a better snack than potato chips, or ice cream, or gum drops.
That worked for a while. Before the world moved in.
Now my children come home from school and demand candy. And I refuse. And a battle of wills begins.
I miss the "more tofu, please" days.
Nonetheless, the other night one of the boys ate three servings of spinach and seitan.
I've still got the touch.
